Mr. Crocitto has created a new Christmas classic with A Child's Christmas in Brooklyn - the poetic tale of Frank's growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, during the threat of war. This beautifully illustrated gift book is reminiscent of Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales, and poignantly captures the true spirit of the Christmas season as reflected in the traditions of a large Italian-American family and the love and respect that binds it together. The reader dives into the Crocitto Christmas from start to finish - sharing his touching, and sometimes hilarious, moments. Hanging the house-lights with Grandpa, sprinkling the strufoli with Grandma for the family feast, and searching for the perfect skimpy Christmas tree with Nicola Santa Crocitto. This is no mere reminiscence, however. Frank believes we can return to that same fresh state of childhood again - when we saw the world as a place of beauty and wonder - in the midst of our 'grown-up' lives. To feel that way again, A Child's Christmas in Brooklyn can transport us there.
